Scofield Farms Pool Update

May 7, 2020

Our biggest community asset, the Scofield Farms pool is undergoing a beautification project and will reopen pending state and city government guidance. Presently, the current Governor proclamation states that public pools and private ROA community pools can open on May 8th but only at 25 percent capacity. There is no way for our ROA to properly monitor that kind of limitation without significant increase in cost to homeowner dues. So, we will have to wait until the capacity limitation is lifted.

Meanwhile, some of the pool upgrade projects underway include:

1. Removal and replacement of the front gate (completed)

2. Repaint perimeter fence (under way; changing from green to black)

3. Paint pool building soffit (changing green to cream – underway)

4. Paint metal area at front gate (black – to begin soon)

5. Install large umbrellas at southeast side of pool (in process)

6. Remove, update and replace pool signage (updates include addressing vaping, smoking and pool contamination accidents/protocol)

7. Remove and replace existing lifeguard chairs (ordered) and paint chair poles (underway)

8. Addition of new potted palms (finalizing research)

9. Lastly, order new pool furniture with commercial grade pool furniture (received and ready at opening)

The ROA Board understands the desire for many residents of our community to open the Scofield Farms pool as soon as possible. We remain hopeful with you that soon we will be able to enjoy some summertime fun in a beautiful updated pool center.

Best regards
Pool Committee

Judith Daniel
I would like to respectfully submit my name as a candidate for the Scofield Farms Board of Directors. My husband and I moved to Scofield Farms in the summer of 2016. We now have a 3 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. I love this neighborhood and look forward to watching our children grow and thrive in this close community.
I believe my position as a mom with a young family in Scofield Farms will be invaluable to the Board. As more young families move to this neighborhood, they will expect to have representation of their specific needs. I have a strong interest in keeping our neighborhood in line with the increasing house prices, to remain competitive to similar priced neighborhoods, and attractive to the young families that are now moving to the neighborhood.
My professional and volunteer background is directly applicable to a Board position:
· Over ten years of experience in non-profit work, including working in a professional capacity with volunteer Boards.
· Three years at the University of Texas, developing alumni relations and fundraising for the Department of Computer Science. This position required interaction with a variety of alumni and University Directors.
· Experience in fiscal management, creating and maintaining budgets both for individual projects and general fiscal years.
· A background working with volunteer teams to help develop new processes and guidelines – Currently I serve on the Parent Advisory Team at my son’s preschool, as well as on the Executive Board of North Austin Mom’s Club (an extremely active club, which has over 150 members).
I would be excited to serve on the Scofield Farms Board, to help our neighborhood continue to grow and serve the needs of the residents. I appreciate your consideration.

Paul Maine
I have previously served as a board member and board president. I have lived in our neighborhood for more than 20 years. I have a passion for keeping our neighborhood a nice and safe place to live.

Ketan Patel
I have had the honor of serving on the Board of Directors for the past three years (the past two years as Board President) and would appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve the community as a Board member.
My wife and I have lived in Scofield Farms for over 7 years. We have raised our two young boys here and we have grown to love the sense of community around us. We love seeing neighbors out walking dogs, kids riding scooters and bicycles around the neighborhood, and being able to waive a friendly “Hello” to people passing by. I have seen the neighborhood change over the last 7+ years. New friends move in, while old friends move out. Businesses close but are replaced by new ones. This sense of community is what drives me to want to continue helping the neighborhood during the period of growth for the area around Scofield Farms that we are experiencing.
While I have been on the Board, the Board has reached out to our neighboring communities to start dialogues with their Boards and share information. This most recent iteration of the Board has also worked with Architectural Control Committee (ACC) in order to get clarification and updates on several issues that the Board thinks are important for those in our community. I am proud of the channels of communication we have been able to open, but there is still more we can do. And that’s why I want to continue to serve on the Board, to continue to give back to the community that has given to my family.
